As a mom who loves to cook for my baby boy, the biggest kitchen dilemma that I've faced is what to make — and how to transport it — when we're out and about. I usually end up resorting to squeeze pouches, which the little guy loves, and are superconvenient, but I always prefer homemade when given the option. Apparently I'm not the only one out there facing this challenge, as a new cookbook from Kim Laidlaw, Baby & Toddler On the Go, addresses the issue.
San Francisco based Laidlaw is a mom herself, a food writer, and the author of two other cookbooks. Her approach to preparing meals for babies and toddlers on the run is based on a six-tiered philosophy: plan, gather, cook, store, transport, and feed. Sound daunting? It's really not, so long as you're organized and factor in some advance prep time. Give it a shot for yourself by taking it to the kitchen with one of these three recipes from the book.
